My wife and I stayed three nights. We enjoyed our stay in two separate rooms. We were alright with the one that had no a/c but preferred the one with a/c as it does get really hot in Kerala. Debra was a great hostess even before we arrived. She helped us organize an affordable transfer from our previous hotel when they just wanted to overcharge. She then informed us in transit that there was a local festival on that day. We went to it and enjoyed it very much. She also gave us a brief orientation on the cliff and suggested a restaurant that became our hangout for meals. Breakfast was good. The rooftop was relaxing. The overall feel of the place was welcoming. There is no hot water but given the heat we did not mind that. Laundry was affordable. This place is service-oriented and great value.
